Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the efficacy of blended learning (BL) in emergency medical resident education related to the diagnosis and treatment of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.

STUDY DESIGN:

A mixed-method study.

PLACE AND DURATION OF STUDY:

Emergency Department of Hamad General Hospital, Doha, Qatar from 1st to 31st January 2018.

METHODOLOGY:

Participating emergency medical residents were assigned to either traditional lecturing (TL) or BL groups and they used several instruments to review medical knowledge and skills before and after instruction. The residents' opinions were sought through semi-structured interviews.

RESULTS:

Students in both groups possessed similar knowledge and skills improvement, but reported a strong preference for TL.

CONCLUSION:

There is a need for further evaluation of learning technology and students' learning styles to maximise medical education.
